I registered and created both my blog and my avatar. Creating the blog was really easy; it was a lot like creating a web page...something I know a little about :-). In fact, I named my blog after my own website...but the gifts and treasures I have are more than my website...they are my family, my friends, my students, and my teaching. All I am blessed with I consider "gifts" and "treasures."
The avatar was also a lot of fun to create. I plan on going back to Yahoo Avatars and creating other favorite avatars so that I can change them on my blog according to the time of the year, my mood, etc. It took me a minute to figure out the instructions on exporting my avatar, but that's okay...I learned in the process!!
